Botanical Treasures of the Gorge at Buttermilk Falls State Park

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Unitarian Church Annex, 2nd floor 208 E. Buffalo St., Ithaca

The Finger Lakes Native Plant Society presents a slide show and talk:

From May through October hundreds of people hike the trails (daily) around the gorge at Buttermilk Falls State Park. The hikers are of all ages and from many countries. They come to enjoy the scenic qualities that make Buttermilk Falls so special. Yet, extremely few people seem to show much curiosity about the plant life that covers the stones at the gorge. We invite you to join us for a unique, virtual hike around one of New York's most scenic natural landscapes.
